El Tren de los Momentos

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Released in the wake of Alejandro Sanz's collaboration with Shakira, "La Tortura," which was far and away the most popular Latin song of 2005, El Tren de los Momentos is a continuation of the broad stylistic excursions of the Spanish superstar's previous album, the Grammy-winning No Es Lo Mismo. Sanz seems increasingly comfortable with moving beyond his comfort zone -- that is, fairly generic romantic ballads laden with complex language sung distinctly -- and here he refines the rough edges of No Es Lo Mismo for an album that is smooth while at the same time risky in its refusal to reprise the sturdy balladeering of his past. Notably, the album is graced with several ...

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Released in the wake of Alejandro Sanz's collaboration with Shakira, "La Tortura," which was far and away the most popular Latin song of 2005, El Tren de los Momentos is a continuation of the broad stylistic excursions of the Spanish superstar's previous album, the Grammy-winning No Es Lo Mismo. Sanz seems increasingly comfortable with moving beyond his comfort zone -- that is, fairly generic romantic ballads laden with complex language sung distinctly -- and here he refines the rough edges of No Es Lo Mismo for an album that is smooth while at the same time risky in its refusal to reprise the sturdy balladeering of his past. Notably, the album is graced with several superstar features, including collaborations with Shakira, Juanes, Alex Gonzalez of Maná, and Residente of Calle 13. These features are some of the album's several highlights, "Te Lo Agradezco, Pero No" and "La Peleíta" above all. The lead single, "A la Primera Persona," is another clear-cut standout. On the surface, it's an odd song, from its immediate opening tension to its concluding avalanche of breathlessness, yet its unconventional structure is a chief aspect of why it's such a memorable and moving song. In fact, if not for the brief trumpet solo two-thirds of the way through, Sanz rambles on almost violently through the song uninterrupted, not even stopping to catch his breath. There are numerous stylistic exercises here, namely "El Tren de los Momentos" (funk), "Se Molestan" (rock), "Donde Convergemos" (jazz), and "Te Quiero y Te Temo" (country), which are curious, though not necessarily impressive songs. Better is "En la Planta de Tus Pies," a beats-and-piano (trip-hop?) ballad reminiscent of Sanz's traditional material, of which there is painfully little on El Tren de los Momentos. Longtime fans, particularly those fond of his romantic songs, are sure to be frustrated, if not infuriated, by Sanz's apparent refusal to sing the kind of love songs that were long his stock-in-trade. However, those who are open to new sounds from Sanz will have little to complain about, for El Tren de los Momentos is perhaps his most willfully diverse album yet, and it's one on which it sounds like he's genuinely entertaining himself -- again, not unlike No Es Lo Mismo.

    Someone who loves good music

    Alejandro s back with a romantic album, back to the roots, to the classic style of alejandro Sanz, pure, a pleasure to listen to even if you don't understand spanish perfectly. Excellente disco, de vuelta al Alejandro sanz del principio, con esa voz ronquita y ese estilo unico de Ale, super recomendable

    One of the best albums to come out in '06!

    I have been a longtime devoted fan of Alejandro Sanz and his work, and this new release of his has once again proven to be a huge success, not only in the hearts and minds of critics, but of his fans across the globe. His music and lyrics are inspiring, uplifting and most of all, personal. Alejandro is able to truly connect to the listener with his passionate words and powerful voice. Along with some great collaborations with Shakira, Juanes and Calle 13, all of which are respectively incredible artists, he is able to deliver music that is all the while modern, catchy and simply put, beautiful.

    AMAZING

    Another beautifully written and composed album by this real musician. As usual he has re-invented himself without losing his essence. This record will make you want to speak spanish because his lyrics are as important as every guitar stroke.

    Unique - always reinventing himself

    Some typical tracks you would expect from Alejandro Sanz but overall another reinvention. Appropriate military beats with his flamenco style. Music sounds organic with beautiful lyrics. Calle 13 track does not fit in but demonstrates how innovative he is. Track with Shakira is a 'Corazon Partido' Duet (Awesome!).
